I am running into a problem with a breaker always popping ,so i am going to have to get a Sub-panel put in.I currently have a 125 service with all the fuses being used,no more room.Has anyone had this done recently,or can recommend a good electrician?Thanks

personally have done it myself but i had 200 amp service.. gave me more room to move around my wiring...125 service i feel for you :(
what you running thats popping breaker???
you should have about 15 amps per room(breaker)...which should at 120 volts give you 1800 watts....(tally everything in room thats plugged in)
either you have bad wiring/ground or major draw that should have its own breaker...
my room is running under 1600 watts w /2 tanks and 1 computer and 3 video security cameras..
